Re-edited movie trailers

September 30th, 2005 by Seb Chan

Here’s some entries for a little competition where movie trailers were re-edited to change the genre of the film. They are quite amazing. (originally from Snarkmarket)

The Shining (winner) –

West Side Story –

Titianic –


Here’s a link to the New York Times article on it.

Robert Ryang, 25, a film editor’s assistant in Manhattan, graduated from Columbia three years ago with a double major in film studies and psychology. This week, he got an eye-opening lesson in both.

Since 2002, Mr. Ryang has worked for one of the owners of P.S. 260, a commercial postproduction house, cutting commercials for the likes of Citizens Bank, Cingular and the TriBeCa Film Festival.

A few weeks back, he said, he entered a contest for editors’ assistants sponsored by the New York chapter of the Association of Independent Creative Editors. The challenge? Take any movie and cut a new trailer for it — but in an entirely different genre. Only the sound and dialogue could be modified, not the visuals, he said.
